Help Glen Echo Glassworks Achieve International Acclaim

About the Project

The prestigious Glass Arts Society selected Glen Echo Glassworks artists Paul SwartwoodMark Hill, and Phil Valencia to demonstrate specialized glassblowing techniques at the Annual Meeting in Sweden in May 2020.

This exceptional opportunity and international exposure exemplifies the growing success of the glass arts program at Glen Echo Park.

Your contribution at any level will be matched for a limited time through the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County. Help us reach our goal before matching funds run out! 

Donations will cover conference expenses -- including glass preparation and shipping of working tools and safety equipment -- to enable these talented emerging artists to showcase their artistry, interact with experts in the glass world, and discover new insights to share with their students at the Park.
